I haven't had any mad cravings at all and also 33 weeks! Someone told me icecream is good for heartburn so I've been eating a lot of that but I wouldn't say I'm craving it.

On another note, I read today that craving ice could mean an iron deficiency. Have you had bloods taken recently and are you taking an iron supplement?


Hi i had a glucose test done a few weeks ago and my m/w said everything seems to be for Hart burn my god i hate it never tried ice cream going to have a go next time i get it . Do you know what you're having? I'm on my 3rd boy i also have 3 girls but most of them are grown up now and think we're made starting again. Thanks for the reply


The glucose test wouldn't test for iron levels though. God, I had that glucose test done a while ago. Horrible having to fast and then drink Lucozade first thing!! Mine came back clear too, one less thing to worry about. I swear I should buy shares in Gaviscon with this heartburn! It's ridiculous! The bottle says not to take long term but I checked with both pharmacist and GP to make sure it's ok to keep taking.

I'm a ftm, so not as experienced as you with your 5 kids already! I'm having twins, we think it's boy/girl but keeping things neutral to make things simple! Can't wait to meet the babies, I feel like I'm done and just want to get to July now.


I had a friend who had a thing for ice cubes. I wouldn't worry or b embarrassed your getting more water and staying hydrated and its not going to cause u to put on weight, win win 😊. My first pregnancy it was Jaffa cakes! Not healthy lol x
